           Summary: foreignObject as child of <svg>
           Product: SVG
           Version: All Specifications
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Definitions
        AssignedTo: schepers@w3.org
        ReportedBy: j.chetwynd@btinternet.com

SVG1.1 Second Edition states
'Usually, a ‘foreignObject’ will be used in conjunction with the ‘switch’
element...'
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/extend.html#EmbeddingForeignObjects

this implies that foreignObject may be used without 'switch',
which appears analogous to the 'alt' model where alt content is usually
desirable,

however according to Michael Smith, maintainer of the W3C validator,
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13311
the "SVG 1.1 relaxng schema provided by the SVG working group. (It)
enforces that same constraint. That is the schema which the validator.nu
backend uses...."

Please clarify whether foreignObject 'must' be a child of a switch element,
or enable validator to parse foreignObject as child of other elements such as
<svg>
